OK, so in the namek saga, we learn that all namekians have the same carachteristics right? and that they don't eat, they only drink water..

In DB, Piccolo Daimao(demon king piccolo) is tellin his chef what he likes to eat:|

and his "children" don't look like namekians, except for the green colored skin.
And of course, except for piccolo.

A.T. messed up then...

There's no real way to explain that off.... I dont blame him though, he probably didnt think at the time that he'd go that deep into his race later on but he should've thought about it when he did create the info about them.

Yeah, he was just a green bad dude in Dragonball, then in DBZ they made up his race and filled in the details.

Meh just by watching an episode of DBZ you can tell that A.T is thinking up stuff on the spot.

Akira Toriyama didn't make the episodes. Originally, King Piccolo was a demon, and Goku was just a boy with a tail.

Besides, King Piccolo doesn't know he's a Namek anyway. King Piccolo was the evil side of Kami, and Kami didn't know he was a Namek either. So there is a chance that King Piccolo didn't know that he didn't need to eat. Piccolo was the same, we saw him eating fish and what not, and he didn't know he was a Namek until later.

Eating food could've been something the Nameks don't need to do in order to survive, but that doesn't elimate the possiblity of them being able to eat food.

LOL, weird conversation going on here.

But yeah, King piccolo had no knowledge of his race whatsoever, probably just thought he was an abnormal human or something, lol.

But I think A.T knew that Goku was going to be a saiyan when DB was released, remember the very first episode? yeah.

Akira Toriyama said in an interview that originally Goku was supposed to be just a normal boy until someone suggested that Akira Toriyama make Goku different from normal characters, thus Goku's tail was born. Originally, Goku was just a boy with a tail that transforms if he looks at the moon.

King Piccolo was supposed to be just a demon, not a Namek.

As the series progressed, Akira Toriyama started to introduce new races to give a reason to why a lot of the characters are what they are. I think when he was coming up with a story for Radditz, that he decided to make Radditz Goku's brother to add a twist.

Here's an explaination that doesn't break the fourth wall.

--------

Nameks don't need to eat, that doesn't mean they cant. Maybe he ate because he enjoyed it rather than for sustinance. The chefs were, after all, preparing his 'favorite meals'.

Evil King Piccolo didn't know he was a Namek, in the same way that Piccolo and Kami didn't at the start of Z.
